Their vertical and broad jump are similar, Kupp has him by good margain on 20 yard shuttle. Watching Ridley run routes as I prepared for the mock draft, my comp was Kupp. They both have great release techniques and vary the speed of their routes to gain separation. They both have quite a highlight reel of circus catches due to body control. In short, they are legitimate #2 receivers if you have a freak on the other side.I think Kupp was more adept with being a quality WR and, more important, he produced like it in college. I understand Ridley was hampered by the UGA staff and playcalling, but...come on, you cannot be that poor producing and still get drafted that high. And even then, Kupp was drafted in the 3rd round and Ridley isn't even close to him athletically. Kupp had a slow 40, but he is very, very quick. Ridley...just sucks as an athlete.
